Reciting duas aloud in Salaah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: In prayer, if one recites the attahiyat (or any other portion of the prayer besides the recitation of the Qur’an) audibly, is one required to perform Sajdah Sahw?


A: One should not recite Tashahud (attahiyyaat) or any of the duas of Salaah aloud. However, if one had recited the Tashahud or any of the duas aloud then Sajdah Sahw will not be waajib.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

قال الشامي : تتمة قد صرحوا بأنه إذا جهر سهوا بشيء من الأدعية والأثنية ولو تشهدا فإنه لا يجب عليه السجود (رد المحتار 2/ 82)

وإن جهر بالتعوذ أو بالتسمية أو بالتأمين لا سهو عليه كذا في فتاوى قاضي خان (الفتاوى الهندية 1/ 128)
